Double Shot Keys From Signature Plastic - Pimp Your Keyboard
« on: Mon, 19 April 2010, 17:33:00 »
Nice!!  That's how I made my centered Caps Lock keys.   But it's nice to have the instructional video!!   A lot of work to move that stem on the key.....

I moved the stem on a few of the Cherry space bars, but the stabilizers don't fit.   Have you worked up a nice mod to move the stabilizers?  I have a few ideas....

These look like standard ESC key profiles as well instead of these Vintage spherical ones.

They tried to capture the best of both worlds by using the crazy vintage typeface.

I emailed Signature and they confirmed that the Orange #!X%* key and the Panic key are the ONLY two Cherry MX compatible keys.


The Panic key you got looked like this:



The one I got looks like this (image swiped from your AnyKey pic):



On the positive side, the Orange X%&#! key they sent me is indeed Cherry MX compatible, although it's skyscraper-tall.

UPDATE: As far as I can tell all "Pimpmykeyboard" novelty keys are no longer Cherry MX compatible. At least the batch I got from them Jan 2011 wasn't .

Weird. I just ordered PANIC and X%&#! keys from pimpmykeyboard on January 6 and they're both Cherry MX compatible. When did you order yours?

Is this the one used to cut the stem out to be used ?

It is Göögle here.

In German I would guess the closest to X-Actos are Teppichmesser/Cutter-Messer and whatever you might call them.

X-acto knife is the same as what you would call a hobbykniv in Norway. You can get them in different flavours at Clasohlson. It's basically a sturdy scalpel :)

hey ripster,

Since I haven't come across it, I thought I would add the "SELF DESTRUCT" key to the thread.
It has Cherry MX stems I believe, but the spacing is too close and the stems extend too far down for the stabilizers; it will still have to be modded.

Regarding the other keys... fml, I have so much modding to do.

Updated the OP.  You CAN get Cherry MX compatible Panic keys still if you email them the request.

Stands a bit higher than the other keys.  You can shave it down a bit but I've found the keys are so thick there is a limit before the switch starts sticking to the key.

Sweet, how much did one cost u?

The "SELF DESTRUCT" and "Senior Moment" key caps have the 0L or 0M mount that has a bigger stem and a longer, thinner cross. I don't know if this is an old type Cherry mount or another manufacturer.
You can see the mount here: http://keycapsdirect.com/pdfs/MountStyles.pdf
